A Day in the Life of their RVN Team:

In their veterinary practice, your role in kennels involves managing a diverse inpatient caseload, catering to small furries and hedgehogs, where you’ll devise and implement tailored care plans for each patient. The veterinary nurse plays a pivotal role in overseeing the care of hospitalised animals and their recovery post-procedures, taking on significant leadership roles in inpatient care. You’ll also assist skilled veterinary surgeons during operations, ranging from routine neutering to complex soft tissue, orthopaedic, and ophthalmic surgeries. Moreover, the team benefits from the expertise of a visiting peripatetic surgeon.
